I joined that geocaching site and went out hunting for a spot here. When I posted my results I got shot down for going into a farmer's field even tho I asked permission so I said fugit and never went back. Have better things to do with my outdoor time than looking for hidden toys. I'd rather go fishing! smile

peace

Munzee is similar to Geocaching except its played with smart phones and your scanning QR codes as your logs.

Munzee is a freemium scavenger hunt game where places have to be found in the real world. The game is similar to Geocaching but uses QR code technology, in addition to device GPS location, to prove the find instead of a logbook. Launched in Texas in 2011, the game caught on first in Germany, along with California and Michigan. It is now played in more than 50 countries around the world, and there is at least one physical Munzee deployed on every continent, including Antarctica.

The places are marked by other players using QR codes, which are hidden and often printed on weatherproof stickers. The places can also be marked by a NFC tag. These stickers are called Munzees. Both the finding and the hiding players receive points for deploying and finding Munzees. The QR codes on the Munzees are read by means of a smartphone app for IOS, Android or Windows. The coordinates of the Munzees as well as the data of the players are managed via the central web platform.

Virtual Munzees are also available for purchase. These also appear in app lists and on maps, and they are "captured" by locating the app device within 300 feet of the designated location. The device must also be within 300 feet of a QR code Munzee to verify "capture."
